27 RV Parks near El Mirage, Arizona

This is much more a resort than a campground. It is huge with well over 1100 sites, a good percentage of which are permanent residents. It has a gated entry, 18-hole golf course, pool and spa, fitness center, softball, pickleball, tennis, lawn bowling, club house and a great on-site restaurant. The laundry had at least 25-30 washers and dryers and was very clean. Our site was fairly level gravel with concrete parking beside for our tow vehicle. All utilities worked well. The only thing missing was a grocery store but there are several within a couple of miles. Now, a couple of complaints - one relatively minor and one major; the person who took our reservation asked every question possible but never mentioned that only some sites had wi-fi. We checked in after the office was closed so didn't find this out until the next morning, after we were all unhooked and set up. She said the wi-fi sites were $5 per day more. We would have gladly paid that charge but weren't willing to tear down, hook up and move at that point. So we had to spend the week running up to the office (when it was open) to use our laptop. For the major complaint - there is no way to dispose of trash. They provide recycling for paper, cardboard and plastic but no dumpsters. City trash collection comes through the park very early in the morning and they strongly recommend not putting out trash the night before. So, we missed the pickups and had to leave the park with a whole week's worth of stinky garbage. I'm sure this is not a problem for permanent residents who have metal garbage cans that can be put out the night before but they really need to make some sort of accommodation for people traveling through. - SandyA

This is an RV RESORT meant for long-term stays, not a standard campground or RV Park. We workamped here for 6 months and loved it. The landscaping is breathtaking and well maintained. The facilities are always clean. There is so much to do here you will never get bored. The pool is huge with a good number of loungers available. It also has a large outdoor fireplace with many tables, etc. The fitness center is impressive with both cardio and weights available and full lockerroom with showers, etc. There are pickleball and tennis courts, shuffleboard, horseshoe pits, a beautifully maintained golf course with restaurant, and a rather active lawn bowling organization with a nice pitch. Weekly dances and concerts (some with full meals) for a nominal expense. Yes, the F16s and the F35s are a problem, but if you can get passed that, the Resort is a lovely place to stay because the sites are huge. - windjamming

We will not return to this RV Park. I am so tired of these RV parks charging an arm and leg and having no WIFI. On top of a close to $1000 a month rate we had to pay another $30 for WIFI for a month. Then they add electricity on to your VISA when you leave (I am not sure how much more that added). They only collect garbage on Mon & Thur. There are no dumpsters in the park if you have extra garbage. This is very unsanitary. Who wants keep their garbage in the rig for 4 days!! They have some nice facilities but so do a few others. Also, they have palm trees situated in poor places. We had to pull in our mirrors to get into our parking spot. As everyone else has said, the jets are horrible noise, but we knew we were getting that. They flew several nights at 11 PM. - JackieD

Unfortunately we've heard this park has been closed and purchased by the city. They have other plans for the property. Planes, trains, and automobiles! Noise was definitely noticeable. All are basically next door. We enjoyed our stay and the park was very convenient for Mariner and Padres games. - SandyBBB

We've found it! An OASIS in the desert! Donorma RV Park is absolutely a gem. We are so lucky to have found this park. It is not like the sterile parks where they have 80' palm trees that offer no shade, and everyone is stacked up against the neighbors like sardines. The lots come in a variety of sizes to fit most RV's.
Donorma has trees that offer shade, grass, the green mowable variety, a smorgasbord of cacti to check out, humming birds, and bunch of bunnies running around. The management staff (family) are very friendly and helpful. Pretty much everyone was involved in getting us in our space and set up correctly.
We found Donorma while looking for a RV park in the area using Google Maps. All the trees we saw are what drew us to it. We also noticed that it had a pool. Sadly, the pool has now been filled in, and more gravel seems to be arriving daily.
What really made this park stand out from the other parks was the fact that it wasn't a sterile gravel lot, or slabs of concrete and asphalt like all the others we looked at. These RV parks do nothing but radiate heat late into the night which everyone tries to avoid any time of day when you're in the desert.
Anyone that has ever spent any part of the summer season in an RV in the desert looks forward to shade, and a pool, to get away from the endless sun, and heat. We hope the owners realize what a unique gem they have here.
Pro's - Friendly management, trees, green, lots of shade, quiet, location, very clean bathrooms, onsite propane, washers/dryers, pets allowed.
Con's - No pool now, more gravel than needed. - Stone n Pebbles

We stayed at Donorma RV Park for the Winter of 2016, November thru April. This park is such a great place to stay! We found the managers to be very kind and helpful. They work hard to keep up the park and are always doing landscaping or taking care of the grounds in one way or another. It is a family-managed park and so the park has a family feel to it. There are showers and bathrooms as well as 4 washers and dryers for the visiting rver's to use. There are chickens and rabbits and numerous birds if you like animals. There are pets allowed as well. It has a number of pull thru sites and accommodates rv's up to 40'. This is an oasis in the desert as the landscaping uses fruit and hardwood trees as well as many varieties of flowering plants and bushes. It is a very nice park with very nice people managing. - KarenFay

A small campground that is a little tight to navigate. They don't have a minimum trailer length or maximum age to camp like most other places around here have. - Artlamah

This park is mainly for permanent park models with an area by the dumpsters for short term stays. The wifi was great but the cable came with a cable box that you need to hook up to your tv (We didn't use it). There seems to be a lot of activities for the residents of which we were welcome to join in. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The dog park was a nice place to relax in the evening with our dog. The short term sites are so close that the slides almost touch. - Travelindog

Winter home, very social resort. 5 nights of live music and meals. New Pickle Ball Courts (8). Fenced and lighted dog park. Resort is VERY clean. Plenty of shopping and restaurants close. 32 golf courses within 10 miles. Located between Peoria Sports complex -5 miles, (Mariners & Padres) and Surprise Stadium- 4 miles (Rangers and Royals).
Short term parking on dirt, long term parking is mixed in with park models. The full timers are VERY friendly. Sunflower has a Fall special: 4 months for price of 1 month (Sept, Oct Nov Dec). Every hobby has a space. Senior FUN ZONE. - silverado

Since we only stayed a couple of weeks, we were in the transition area but enjoyed the total experience. There are many amenities such as 2 pool s and water exercise options, wood working area, sewing and crafts area, ballroom for shows and plays (we attended a dinner and show - great food), a place to wash your car, pickle ball and Bocci courts to name a few. - k and m

We stayed here six months from October thru March. This was our second time here, and we were even more happy with our stay this time than last. While this is an older park, it has full amenities and activities for the active adult, and RV'ers are welcomed by the permanent residents. It is one of the friendliest parks we've ever been in. The sites are quite spacious. We love it here and have already reserved next winter's stay. It is great for a shorter stopover as well. - MissMyGolden

This is a full-service RV resort with amenities like a pool, pickle ball courts etc. The grounds are immaculate and the hosts at the front gate were particularly helpful. The RV sites are tucked in among aging park models and this is one reason my rating is less than stellar. The park is mostly older park models. We had one other camper near us in a fifth wheel. As a result, the residents tend to stay to themselves inside their homes. For us, it lost the sense of community you get when camping with others who are on the go like we are. The site was gravel with a concrete pad and a spot to park the car. There was no landscaping between sites, but the sites were fairly spacious. A $4 daily resort fee is charged regardless of your use of the facility. We were in town for spring training, so the location was good and our basic needs were met for the several days we were there. - The Regans

Great park, eveyone very nice.
Security guards are wonderful.
Park is clean and this park is a pet friendly park, which is very much appreciated.
We paid 14.00 a night plus 4.00 per night and taxes. We came here with a Coast to Coast membership.
Thank you Paradise RV Resort for the great hospitality. - Mary_M

The park is well located near shopping and restaurants. Paved roads were smooth and RV site was level and clean. We enjoyed the big resort pool. There are mostly older retired folks and many mobiles and park models, with a few short term RV spots here and there. The view out your window will be a mobile home. We felt safe and secure in this park. - Kason rolling

If you have pets, forget this park: There is no designated pet area. The front gate is a bit tight if you are pulling a long trailer. The majority of this park is for 55+ residents who reside in trailers, very few RV spaces and some of them are very tight. Most of the residents are not pet friendly and your dog will need to potty on the street or on your lot; come to think of it, most of the residents are not friendly - period. The Park is gated, which is a plus. The park has a few planned activities for their guests, but we only attended the occasional Saturday donuts social. Reasonable rates for an extended stay, we spent three months in this park. - Dave Scott

This campground suited our basic needs while in Phoenix. It is not a resort, but convenient to many local attractions. They say they have 50 AMP, but we couldn't find one empty site that had it. We stayed in in early Spring, so AC wasn't vital. If we needed 50 AMP, we would find another place. The main downside was the check-in. The hotel guests get priority, so be prepared to wait a while if you check in at a busy time. - travelSupremely

The park is behind a Days Inn which apparently took over a Ramada Inn. The park is as described in other reviews: older and in need of some work, nothing fancy. But, that being said, the park was clean, and I only saw one permanent site that should have been removed. There are few 50 amp sites, and those are really suggested for the Arizona area. We were here for spring training and to visit family so we found the park to be acceptable and safe. We will certainly return. - nmunozjr

The best thing that can be said about this park is that it is a few miles from Spring Training Baseball in Peoria. The park is behind the Ramada Inn Hotel and is the poor sister to the hotel. A few shade trees but none close to us, worn out paved roads and gravel barren hook-up sites. It looks like no one cares about upkeep. The weeds are tall and we didn't go into the bathrooms because I figured if you can't trim the weeds you probably won't have great bathrooms. A fine parking lot with older hook-ups would be a kind description. - User3391

We were able to park in the overflow lot for a much lower cost. However, this lot is only available if all the other spots are taken. The "camping" is in the open gravel parking lot for the mountain bike area at the very end of the road in the park. If you come without water, be aware the dump station does not have potable water. The potable water spigot is at the end of the paved road. There is a loop there with a picnic table and a water spigot. We had two campers who decided they needed to run their generators in the middle of the night. Perhaps someone was in an iron lung and had an emergency..... And the port-a-pottie in this parking lot has not been cleaned in years. But - beautiful drive through the park and lots of nice hiking. Very busy this time of year. - ALbums

Since they added electric, we have enjoyed this Maricopa county regional park. It's way out on the west side of the Phoenix metro area. There are plenty of trails in this desert setting. Lights from the Phoenix area are spectacular to see. Loop is paved. Sites are gravel. Luke AFB is nearby so you do get occasional jet noise. The shower has a push button for water that gives you a few seconds. Keep pushing as needed. Water was hot. Site 31 was level and had a lot of space and wilderness between the patio and next site over (29). The next site (33) over on the hookup side was visually close. - Neil and JoAnn

This is an absolutely beautiful setting. After entering the park there is about a 2 mile drive to get to the campsite. What a beautiful place to stay in the winter. Although we prefer campgrounds with sewer hook ups, this is worth not having them. We got over 100 over the air TV channels. We will definitely be back. - Calteri

Rated 10/10/10 by Good Sam. Nice large indoor pool and hot tub, laundry, book exchange library, craft room, billiard room, card room. Lots of park models but also dedicated RV area. Park on gravel. Hookups well located. Patios are all small and broken at some sites. Very quiet park - Bobco
Apr 2017 - $42.00
A convenient spot to stay for proximity to the north end of Phoenix or Scottsdale area. The park is largely permanent park models, but has a number of back in or pull thru sites for short or longer term stays. The pull thru sites at the entrance to the park are gravel and have a slight forward lean towards the road. Nothing that the levelers could not compensate for. The cement patio pads are small and prove difficult to set out four chairs on. The hookups are excellent, we had no problems with the water or electrical supply. The pull thru sites are large and can accommodate the largest of units with room to park a towed vehicle. It would be difficult to leave your towed vehicle hooked up and position your RV such that you could be positioned near the cement patio or hookups. The WiFi is best available in the lobby of the office, otherwise it is non existent at the sites. Laundry room is large and offers plenty of machines. There is an outdoor clothesline that can be used for air drying. Plenty of activity rooms and recreational facilities to use. We did not use the pool as the water was so murky we couldn't see the bottom. - Riptorn

Resort is a real stretch .. It's a 30 year old trailer park with 90% of the sites filled with park models and RV's thrown in-between.. Nice pool & spa.. Showers are old & small only 3 in the whole park for women & 3 in the mens room.. Showers are Not handicapped accessible.. Nice library, free ice machine. Pull through sites are all rock and not very level.. Concert patio pads are small & some are cracked. Palm trees are in the way and offer no shade..NO WIFI & NO CABLE.. The yearly RV sites are redone ( bigger patio pads, pavers etc) at the renters expense.The lots are very unlevel, tilting towards the street. They are also very close together. We have been here several times & I have never seen anyone use the shuffleboard courts or bocce ball courts..Waste of space, Fruit trees at most of the permeant sites offer lemons and grapefruit.. - Yepwearedoingit

This was our 2nd visit here for one night. Like the last time, it was empty (maybe because Goodyear hits 100+ degrees by May). Pull thrus were easy to navigate. Close to Interstate. We were a little surprised when we arrived at 3:08 pm to find that the office had closed at 3pm. I think there was a typo on one part of their website re: winter vs. summer office hours. Self check-in was easy but we did not get a wifi password. I would stay here again for an overnight. - Dirt Biker

There is a new owner and management in the park, and the difference in attitude is apparent - greatly improved over previous stays. The pull-though sites in the back of the park are very close together, the sites forward of those are back-ins, and very spacious. New this year - the management did away with the "no cargo trailer" rule, which never made sense to me. It is a typical desert RV park, with gravel sites. - DreamCaptn

Stayed a week. Crowded this time of year (pre-season major league baseball). This is always our go-to place when visiting. Sites are close together. I saw awnings up against other coaches. Sites are long enough for just about any rig. Utilities work well, area is clean. The bath/laundry/indoor pool is several hundred yards away, but are modern and clean. They have changed pay wi-fi providers since our last visit, and it is better thid year. Close to Phx Int'l Raceeway, easy-in to downtown PHX and the rest of the valley. - Washoezephyr
